    Thanks for the info. I tried that with no effect.

    What could it be about the connection via wireless that causes the target machines to block the laptop?

    Would Windows even be able to detect that the laptop connection is coming into the router via wireless?

    When the laptop is connected via a 'hard-wired' Ethernet connection everything works fine, it must be something to do with the wireless connection. What's changed in Wind 10 1607 that could cause this?

    It's a tricky one, and no mistake!

    Cheers,

    Mike.

    For Home Network. It is always a good practice to assign a static IP for each device (use LAN settings in Router) so that when power up a device (PC, Printer, smart TV etc...) you'd get the same IP for each device, otherwise you might get a different IP then Network will be broken temporarily until DNS is refreshed.

    Also double check if your Laptop is set to private
